LOS ANGELES (AP) — Summerlike temperatures and gusty winds return as Southern California experiences another mid-winter heat wave.

The National Weather Service says temperatures Monday could top out in the 80s in parts of Los Angeles and Orange counties.

A wind advisory has been issued for some valley and mountain areas. Motorists are cautioned that gusts hitting 50 mph could make driving difficult on mountain roads.

The warming trend is expected to continue for much of the week.
